    Seems like the only thread dedicated to Ally 1-click roots is done with. So I'm starting this one. I apologize if that bothers people. I'm just wondering if anybody knows anything about z4root (ryanZa). Or any other rooting apps. Are they going to be updated for Ally 2.2.1 support? Are there any easy rooting apks out there already? Any suggestions (besides Tridents way on androidforums). I really miss my Ally being rooted. 2.2.1 froYo sucks! Thanks in advanced.

    Not sure about the model but isn't there a way to do it with rsdlite? Id steer clear of the one clicks. I find being in control when you are rooting essential. Plus, then you know the process and the fixes.

    I do agree with you but I've absolutely no problems with 1clicks in the past. And rooting the ally any other way is just a hassel.

    Different manufacturers have different tools for burning images onto their devices. Moto's tool is rsdlite. An LG ally I previously rooted for someone arrived on my doorstep today. They took the update and lost root. I'll post back in this thread how I re-rooted it once I've done so.

    1.5 hours, not too bad.

    History:
    When I first picked this phone up for a relative I rooted it very quickly, in less than 30 minutes. Then I let it do an update. The root files were in place but they had the wrong permissions. I tried to root and was told I was and tried to unroot and was told I didn't have permission to do so. Grrr. 4 hours later the phone was re-rooted. This was back during the end of Thanksgiving week in Nov. 2010.

    Last week I got the call that an update was taken, so I had the phone mailed to me.

    The biggest problem this go around was trying to locate the USB Modem Drivers for the LG Ally (LG-VS740) phone that Windows kept telling me was missing. What follows it the order of the steps I took, which might not be the fastest steps to take.


    1. [APP]SuperOneClick v1.6.5 (Root, Unroot, Enable Non-Market App, Get UNLOCK code) - xda-developers is where I got the SuperOneClick tool from. You need to have an account on the XDA forum to download the tool. I grabbed version 1.6.5, the latest release at this time.
    2. Following the directions at the above link I found the phone never connected. \
    3. Dropping to a command prompt I ran the adb devices command, from the folder I unzipped the tool into, and the device wasn't found. I was being bombarded by Windows wanting to install the driver...which it couldn't locate. The drivers available through the LG site were useless to me.
    4. PdaNet did the trick. I used version 2.4.5 and got the hint from here: LG Ally Forum ...link should bring you to post 5)
    5. Went back to the SuperOneClick tool and first ran the psneuter exploit and when that got stuck I ran the rageagainstthecage exploit (radio knobs for the two exploits are located in the upper right hand corner of the tool).
    6. I had to reboot the phone and then root was complete.

    Shorter recap version: install SuperOneClick. If adb can't see your phone connected you probably have a usb driver issue. If so install PdaNet and only install the first usb driver, skipping the other drivers. Try SuperOneClick again, then reboot your phone once it says it ran ok.

    I've got Barnacle running as a wifi tether app on this phone. It complained about a lack of root access prior to my post here, and Terminal Emulator also failed to give a # response to a keyboard input of su but both work now so root is attained.

    With the above anyone should be able to root a LG Ally 2.2.1 android phone in about 15-30 minutes...good luck!

    Glad the post helped. I have found that Barnacle, and WiFi Tether for Root no longer works on this phone. I even located and tried the apk linked in post 13 here: Issue 559 - android-wifi-tether - LG Ally code support update needed. - Project Hosting on Google Code but that version also wouldn't work for me.

    As this is for a non-mobile PC I'm recommending the route of PdaNet for who this phone belongs to. We won't have to worry about future updates messing with it, I hope. I do see the Mobile Hotspot app and don't recall seeing it before, not sure if that just got added and is playing havoc with the free wifi tether apps.

    Barnacle was working, that no longer does. Wifi from the market also won't work. Good to know it does/should work though. At least now I know it isn't the tethering software but something that has happened to the phone, thanks!

    I had to run the superoneclick a couple of times. Reading the linked info I connected/disconnected/connected the phone from the computer a few times. i knew I was good to go once I could use use adb's devices command and see the phone was present at a command prompt.

    Now I'm stuck because the drivers aren't on the laptop where i shipped the phone back too and pdanet can't locate the phone. doh:)

    Ok..for this laptop (which I'm at the location of the phone and laptop tonight) the lg driver wouldn't work for Verizon phones. The pdanet driver also wouldn't install.

    Drivers & Resources - LG Forum has a list of drivers. Looking around the web led me to try the Virgin Mobile G Ally usb modem driver. This made a bunch of little windows pop up "cartoon bubbles" show up on the task bar down near the clock. When it was down I tried ADB DEVICES again and the phone was seen. This would let others proceed to root it with superoneclick, For me it let me run pdanet one more time and this time it installed and I'm tethered through the phone as I type this on the laptop.
    Good luck and hope this additional info helps.

    I know this a quasi-old thread but I just rooted my ally last night with super one click 1.7. It worked the very first try whereas 1.5 kept looping on me. Just thought id let people know that want to root their phones.

    I've been reading over this forum for the last few months, and thought id finally drop in and say hello. :)
